Blue Mountains Theatre has cancelled all programming until 1 June 2020, due to coronavirus (COVID-19).

All affected patrons will be contacted over the coming week to arrange the refund of tickets already sold.

Blue Mountains Mayor Mark Greenhill said all large gatherings scheduled for the Blue Mountains Theatre and Hub would have to be cancelled, or postponed, including Springwood Growers Market that was to take place on Sunday, 22 March.

Council is currently working with the organisers of all upcoming events in the City, to determine if they can proceed. The organisers of Springwood Foundation Day, which was to be held on Saturday 28 March, have postponed the event until later in 2020.

Council is also postponing all current non-essential community engagement events.

“It is really unfortunate that Council has to take these unprecedented steps,” Mayor Greenhill said.

“A pandemic is a time of uncertainty and we continue to follow the advice of NSW Health and the Federal Department of Health, in order to support our staff and community during this time.

“We please ask that if you are showing any of the symptoms of COVID-19, or have been in contact with anyone who has been diagnosed or showing symptoms of COVID-19, then you not use our facility at this time.

“We also ask that if you have travelled to countries that are identified as having higher risk or moderate risk of exposure to COVID-19, then you delay your visit with us by at least 14 days after your arrival in Australia.

“Our priority is the health of our staff, and the health of our community, and we remain focused on continuing to safely deliver our services to you.

“At this stage, Council facilities like our leisure centres and libraries remain open. But the response to COVID-19 is changing daily and we will continue to follow the advice of the health advisories in relation to this matter.”
